What about ear cropping and tail docking?
New York pets already have to contend with being dressed up in embarrassing outfits by their owners, but thanks to a new law they won’t have to worry about getting any unwanted tattoos or piercings.
On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a new bill into law that will prohibit residents from getting tattoos and piercings for their pets. The bill’s successful passage comes as lawmakers look to clamp down on painful procedures done to animals simply for cosmetic reasons.
When the law takes effect in 119 days, the only types of markings that will be allowed will have to be done in the presence of a veterinarian and must be specifically for health or identification purposes.
